Jamie takes Eala to her first track meet

It was the Oxy High Performance track meet at Occidental College. Professionals and some collegians; only middle distance. Nearly every relevant American middle distance runner was there, and many PRs were still set. Eala was delightful but the single dad with an infant at an outdoor event in the evening definitely got some passed glances. Girls 1600m national high school record holder and current Univ. of Washington star, Christine Babcock, and her family were sitting near us and thought Eala was cute. Jamie ran in a high school meet on this track in 1991. He remembered the stadium being enormous when in fact it is a very intimate setting.

Definitely check out the Men's 800. But Women's 800 and both 1500s were competitive races.
